It has been nearly a year and a half since HPI first announced the Venture Toyota FJ Cruiser. Since then we’ve been teased quite a few times and here we are again with more teaser shots of this cool looking RC truck. This time we get a look at some of the first photos of the sandstorm tan colored Venture FJ Crusier. Though HPI hasn’t made it clear in previous teasers, it has now been confirmed that the Venture will be offered in two colors including gunmetal grey and standstorm tan. Retailers are now being told that the truck will released for sale in May, but we know how that works. It is expected to sell for about $370. Stay tuned!
An all-new platform for scale crawling fanatics, the Venture combines a realistic front-motor position, metal chassis rails and realistic drivetrain with the Toyota FJ Cruiser for a fantastic off-road experience only HPI can deliver! With a licensed replica body that includes front and rear bumpers, mirrors, roof rack and rear tire mount, the Venture brings total scale realism to crawler fans. Underneath the body, the metal chassis rails support a front-mounted motor, central transfer case, telescoping driveshafts and solid axles with metal suspension pieces. Authentically scaled oil-filled shock absorbers and full-time locked differentials work with the tires for confident driving in any off-road environment.
